Many men want a nice, full beard, but an epic copy is simply not for everyone. Do not you have full beard growth but do you want to leave the best possible beard? Then think in terms of possibilities instead of impossibilities.
The tips below give you insight into what you can and can not do better and help you determine your optimal beard shape.
Provide a Healthy Basis
To immediately pierce a bubble: there are no means to make your beard grow faster. No freely available resources, at least. Yet you can stimulate the quality of your beard growth. A diet with lots of protein has a positive effect on the quality of your beard growth, as well as vitamins B6, C, and E: important building blocks for healthy skin and healthy capillaries.
If you do not have such a strong and full beard growth, not much will happen in a few days. You have to give your facial hair some time to see how it develops so that you can determine what works for you and what does not work for you. So do not get impatient if it does not seem that much in the beginning. Give your facial hair a good two weeks (maybe longer) time, brave the tingling phase and then make a plan of action. After a week or two, you have to have a nice picture of how full your beard can be and then it’s time for the next step.
Work With The Facial Hair That You Have
One man has a beautiful, full beard growth and can – if he gives him enough time – to grow an epic beard. The other man has some sad tufts. It is what it is. Therefore work with what it is. If you do not have dense vegetation on your cheeks, you will never be able to grow a good full beard. This does not mean that you can not wear a beard at all. Those who do not have a full beard must be smart.
A beard like this is not reserved for every man, but that does not mean that there are no possibilities.
It may sound a bit contradictory, but by keeping your hair shorter, your beard may look fuller. By shortly trimming the hair, about 2 to 3 millimeters, you get clear hair growth but you mask the fact that you do not have a full beard. You will see that bald spots are more noticeable when the hair grows longer. Many men tend to grow the beard only when they discover that it does not cover well: this often works counterproductive.
This man has no overly full face hair, but knows how to leave a nice beard. The bald spots are less noticeable because the hairs are short.
Also, check what you can do with your hairline. Where is the vegetation closed and where is not? If your cheeks remain slightly bald, you can apply the border a bit lower. In a sloping line (at the level of your auricle to the corner of your mouth) trim the upper hair away until a natural-looking line develops underneath it with beautiful, full vegetation. Also trim away from the bottom, ie from the neck to your jaw, the least vegetated areas so that you also emphasize the full (er) parts here.

If this does not work either, then look at the different types of beards that are possible. From the mustache to the goatee or the goat: there is almost always a possibility if you necessarily want to wear a beard (s) but do not have full beard growth. However, keep in mind the shape of your face. A chin strap is usually better for men with a wide jaw than for men with a narrow face and slim men can often have a better guru than fuller men with a round face.
The power of Grooming
Not only the amount and shape of your beard growth determine the success of your beard: how you treat the facial hair also has a big effect. The maxim is that if you do not have a ‘good beard’ or full beard it looks better in the base if you keep it shorter. This does not mean, however, that you do not have to take care of it. Healthy skin and healthy beard hair look more powerful than a dry, dull beard. Although beard oil is not strictly necessary for a shorter beard, you can use a few drops for cosmetic consideration. Treat your facial hair while showering with a regular conditioner to keep it soft and healthy.
